SDK contains wx import library
« on: October 28, 2005, 04:20:16 pm »
I guess one of the goals of this inclusion was to prevent everyone to build wx themselfs.
But if that was the goal, then there's something short. The build needs to be carried out anyway, since another delivery from that build process is the setup.h from wx.

Maybe in a next rc, this setup.h can be placed next to the import library provided ??

The reason is a different one. Plugin developers need this import library to build plugins which are compatible with RC2. You cannot possibly build your wxWidgets yourself and link against that, it never works.

If you want to write a wxWidgets application (and not a plugin) then you have to compile your own.

yes yes, agreed, but even when developing plug-ins you need that setup.h !!
